As campers get older at Fessenden, the program adapts to meet their social and developmental needs. They are able to participate in new activities and events, and they begin to build deeper friendships with campers in their group. In order to help foster their growing independence, Upper Campers have a variety of activities. They spend more time doing what they love, and they can explore new and exciting activities they haven’t tried before.
Of course, their counselors are there every step of the way, supporting and encouraging them in activities and helping to form a strong, safe group dynamic where each child feels connected to his or her peers.
